Handmade in Devon by Bluebell Love. With a penny inside for luck!
From my small studio in Dartmoor, I busily hand print my own fabric designs on to 100% cotton and sew them into unique home accessories and gifts.
I love watching my fabric ideas evolve into their final products. The process starts with rough drawings that I then carve out of Lino to create individual stamps. These stamps are then repeatedly used to create the overall fabric design. I love experimenting adoing colours at this stage, transforming the plain white cotton and seeing my fabric ideas come to life.
The process that I use to make my fabrics and the fact that a stamp rarely prints the same way twice is what makes every finished item unique and individual. I even print my own labels to bring that extra touch of handmade love to every one of my hand sewn products.
My fabric designs are inspired from my surrounding Devonshire countryside and feature rabbits, mice, beach huts, wildflowers, Seagulls and other Devon delights. Once I have finished a design I give it a name.
I print onto 100% cotton that is carefully heat set when finished so that my prints can be machine washed at 30C.
